Schools & Childcare



The Department of Health Services recommends that schools cancel or postpone all in-person ceremonies for spring and summer graduations. Public gatherings such as traditional graduation ceremonies are not advised until the state has met benchmarks articulated in the state’s Badger Bounce Back plan and the state determines that it is safe to do so.

Child Care:

Child care programs are able to remain open during the COVID-19 outbreak, but must operate with no more than 10 staff and fewer than 50 children present, in compliance with an order issued by Governor Evers on March 18, 2020. Programs are encouraged to prioritize access to child care services for essential workers, such as first responders, health care providers, and critical infrastructure workers.
